I started with a digital mouse and yeah you can paint with one but its really a lot easier or at least a lot more natural feeling using a tablet.

When I look at this piece of art, I can image that soldie fighting a whole army of giant robots on his own.
I really like the angle, you're immediately drawn into the action.

I LOVE how the angle of the picture makes it look like your looking up at whats happening, and the blur gives it that real time caught in the middle of combat look. F'ing Amazing!

Dang...I love the turbulence in this. There's a extraordinary sense of action and speed and I love the fire that surrounds the subjects. Also, the subjects themselves are just so convincing, this artwork just makes the storyline come to life completely. Makes me wish I could make that same sense of speed on my work at the same time. ^^;
